Special thanks to 'drupal'

Most Prajagalu would wonder what that cryptic thing is. Drupal is the technology behind praja website. Without a powerful, free (!) and open tool like drupal, a large community site like this wouldn't have been possible.

Thanks to Drupal, this site didn't take millions of dollars to build. Dries Buytaert (creator of Drupal), and thousands of drupal developers around the world, take a bow.

Prajagale,

Indeed this is a proud moment for Praja and the whole Praja community deserves a hearty congratulations. Once again another reason to celebrate the idea of "PRAJA" - Citizen Engagement.

Let us continue the Praja journey by taking up more issues that concerns each one of us, our city, our state and our nation. Let us discuss, argue, counter argue all in the Praja spirit. More work to do.

Perhaps this recognition needs to be seen as bestowing us with more responsibilities towards fulfilling our objectives of promoting a more egalitarian society.

Does that sound profound enough? :)))

Wonderful news! Congrats to all the people who worked so hard on this task. Hope many good things will result from the pursuit of accountability, and that Praja.in will become an even greater force to reckon with. I'm already so happy with the respect the site has got from the authorities, and the recognition of the good will, energy and resources volunteered by its supporters.

4 Cs of Social Media!

up
111 users have liked.

When Pranav shared the news from Delhi that Praja.in has won in the category of "Best Social media Initiative", after recovering from the great achievment moments, I started to look for the exact meaning of social media. Came accross a very good written blog by a Georgetown University Research Scholar Mr. Gaurav Mishra. I hope you all will like this blog.

Courtsey - Georgetown University Blogs

Author - Mr. Gaurav Mishra

Weblink - https://digitalcommons.georgetown.edu/blogs/isdyahoofellow/

Gaurav writes "...The 4Cs Social Media Framework

My own approach to social media is both tool-agnostic and terminology-agnostic. So, I use the term social media to encompass all the tools and all the practices that are described by the terms I mentioned above.

Instead of getting distracted by the tools and the terminologies, I focus on the four underlying themes in social media, the 4Cs of social media: Content, Collaboration, Community and Collective Intelligence. Taken together, these four themes constitute the value system of social media. I believe that the tools are transient, the buzzwords will change, but the value system embedded in these 4Cs is here to stay. So, let’s look at these 4Cs in some detail...".

Thanks, focus has to be on the 4 Cs

On behalf of many who have contributed in various ways towards coming this far (award is for all of them - praja!), want to thank all the well wishers for your encouraging words. Its just a small milestone, there is lots to do, and lot more distance to go.

As Syed pointed out via that very relevant image from Gaurav, it really is about those 4 Cs. And on this Praja ecosystem, built around the website, we have the range covered:

  • Content, aka Discussions. Talk is encouraged here, just come and say your thing, as long as you talk some sense about your city. Talk is never belittled on Praja, it is of prime importance as citizen's preferences are understood that way.
  • Community (I place this 2nd, slight difference from Gaurav's picture) - gets built here around ideologies, ideas, or causes.
  • Collaboration - Group think, to evolve suggestions, criticism, or ideas
  • Collective Wisdom, aka output of all of above - Now that we have discussed and understood some issues for over 2 years, more and more projects would show up, where few project members, would knowingly or unknowingly, carry the filtered and summarized wisdom created by the larger community.

To end this lecture-mode comment with an appeal - just get in please, pick your favorite "C", and contribute. Every little contribution matters. A lot many people read this site than write here. Change that ratio please, do what you like, talk, connect, think or do, anything is okay.
